At the same time that eleven Cityzens members were greeted by Paul Lake and Les “Chappy” Chapman with their own personalised 2014/15 home shirts at the Etihad Stadium, Club Partners, Nike and Etihad Airways surprised City fans touching down on the morning flight from Abu Dhabi.
Club Ambassador and City legend, Mike Summerbee, was on hand waiting to greet the fans and present them with the new kit as they disembarked the Etihad plane.

The new shirt embodies the Club’s pioneering spirit of innovation with a sleek new infield blue look, with dark blue high cuffs and a constructed v-neck collar with a field blue triangle beneath it.
Inside the back of the neck is a dark blue pennant tab with the bold statement ‘We are City’ in field blue.
The new home shorts are field blue with a thin dark blue stripe along each side, while the new home socks are field blue with a dark blue band at the top, and a wide dark blue tonal stripe on the back.
While this new kit features Nike’s signature design details, it also offers players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.
